Support Federal Employees: Wear Red For Feds July 25

Federal employees and their unions have been under sustained attacks from many quarters, including the administration and Congress. On July 25 in Washington, D.C., lawyers from several unions representing hundreds of thousands of federal workers will be arguing their case in court against the three executive orders issued in May that undermine 40 years of civil service law.
On that day, the largest of these unions, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), is hosting a rally and picket in D.C. and across the country: #RedForFeds. PASS, on behalf of its 11,000 members at the Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Defense, fully supports these efforts.
As they fight it out in court, PASS, AFGE, the Union Veterans Council and other federal unions are calling on members and allies across the country to participate in a nationwide show of solidarity and support for federal government workers by wearing red to work on Wednesday, July 25, 2018.
Federal employees serve their country 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. These dedicated men and women are proud to work on behalf of the American public. They deserve our respect and gratitude.

Celebrating Our Independence

As our nation celebrates its independence on July 4th, PASS-represented employees at the Federal Aviation Administration will be working side-by-side with thousands of dedicated federal workers who will be on the job protecting our fellow citizens. Fireworks will be lighting up the sky “from sea to shining sea” Wednesday night and PASS members will be keeping the National Airspace System safe for the flying public. Proud to serve our country today and every day. Fly safe, be safe.

Republican Lawmakers Call on President to Rescind Workforce EOs

In a letter to President Trump on Monday, 21 House Republicans expressed their objections to the three executive orders issued late last month that would restrict federal employees’ union rights. They have called on the president to rescind these orders, believing they undermine existing labor laws.

“Federal workers have taken an oath of service to our great nation, and we take very seriously their duty to provide the American public with quality services,” the lawmakers wrote. “That is why we believe that now, more than ever, it is important to uphold and strengthen the working relationships between federal workers and agency leadership.”

PASS played an active role in recruiting lawmakers to sign on to the letter.
